GC24C:
Tropical Cyclones and Climate on All Timescales II


Session ID#: 10359

Session Description:
Tropical cyclones (e.g. hurricanes and typhoons) consistently rank among the world’s deadliest and costliest natural hazards.  The relationship between tropical cyclones and climate is a controversial topic, and mounting evidence suggests tropical cyclones actively contribute to the dynamics and biogeochemistry of Earth’s coupled climate system.  This session aims to highlight recent advances in tropical cyclone-climate interactions across all spatial and temporal scales, using observational data, proxy records, and models.  We especially welcome submissions that address inter-disciplinary aspects of tropical cyclones and climate (including impacts), address changes in tropical cyclone activity under different climate conditions (natural or anthropogenic), and examine the influence of these events on various components of Earth’s climate system (including ocean-atmosphere interactions and circulations, ocean biogeochemistry, and the carbon cycle).
